Quick Bio:

Getting pettin' and lovin'

When Rodge bites on his ears.

Favorite Toy:
He's not much of a 'toy' dog. He prefers running laps in the backyard.

Favorite Food:
He's like a canine vacuum--he'll eat anything.

Favorite Walk:
Forest Park

Best Tricks:
I taught him not to pee in the house, and as far as I'm concerned that's an amazing trick.

Arrival Story:
I went to the pound 'just to look' (yeah, right). This woman was walking in with Cooper (back when his name was Duke) just as I was walking out. He had his tail between his legs and looked so terrified. My heart went out to him, and I took him off her hands right there in the parking lot. I named him "Special Agent Cooper" after Kyle MacLachlan's character on Twin Peaks.

The lady I got him from told me he was a mix of a beagle and a hound, but all you have to do is look at him to see he's a foxhound. I got a book on American Foxhounds and after consulting it closely that's definitely what he is. I think he's doggie royalty who somehow got misplaced, but found his way into my life by the hand of fate.
